Elephant bassinet



My step daughter was having a baby and wanted a bassinet made of pallets in shape of a half moon. She was doing the babies room in elephant's so I decided to make a elephant bassinet instead. Took a few tries to get the head and trunk at the right height but once that was figured out the rest came along great. A few paint touches and it was ready to go. Wanted to do it in all wood but had to wrap in cloth to finish. Was a fun project the next one I will have a better idea on how to do it better. The fun part was driving home with the elephant in the back and watching peoples reaction when I drove by.
